October 27 - November 23, 2024

My love of travel and exploration spark the inspiration, both spiritual and visual that I derive from experiencing new landscape, people and culture which in turn invigorates my work and challenges me to both portray and understand our world.  I like to paint and photograph in places where the weather, the traditions and the geography still dominate; where these elements identify and characterize a locale.  Where I can still connect to what has gone before and one feels an authentic “sense of place”.  I'm interested in exploring the harmonious effects of light, texture, shape and color and presenting these qualities in ways that evoke memory and spirit.

I find myself especially drawn to the vernacular architecture of rural New England and Nova Scotia.  The simple, clean geometry of farm barns with their angles and planes, weathered texture and shadows elicit a strong response in me.  They represent a connection to tradition, a timeless bonding with the land.  These structures are rapidly disappearing from the American landscape, so, in a way, to paint them is to also document and preserve  their presence.
